Medical Test for Saudi Iqama

 Posted in Saudi Arabia forum 

Hello dears,
Is it possible for a person to get iqama if he have some minor medical problem?

One of my friends got hepatitis B 5 years before.He got treatment and thus got rid of it.It became non-reactive but when blood tested it shows positive.
It is non-reactive but shows positive,all other related tests like LFT are normal.

Can you please guide us in this regard?

    Dear SK.

    I don't know its bit late. but in future may be someone can benefit from my reply.
    GCC countries draws very strict rules for medical examinations call GAMCA. Unfortunately your friend is UNFIT to work under their guidelines. Its very unfortunate with these new guidelines they don't see person have disease or not they see fitness. You had something before you are healthy now, but you are Unfit to work, they draw these rules specially for developing countries, India, Pak, Bangla, Philpine etc..
    PM me if you need any guideline.

    Dear Brother,

    Thanks for the information but I want to ask are you sure that such a minor issue can stop someone to get Iqama?
    I mean he has no more hepatitis B.He has got rid of it.So embassy should clear him.
    Can you please give some more details of it?

    dear SK

    As I said earlier according to GCC medical exam guidelines whether a person have active disease or not , even if he had in past he is unfit. But again you can talk privately to the doctors or concerened staff before. There is way out if you arrange it before; i hope you got my point.

    I will recommend to all people in pakistan, india, bangladesh, philpine if you are planning to work in any GCC country; before going for any visa or job process do your medical exam privately first. These countries are making very insane laws. best luck
